Change into a Truck…in a RAP?

Okay, It’s now officially an internet phenom. The rap is a little long, but right around the 3 minute mark these guys throw out a lyrical homage to Nakatomi’s Change Into a Truck print… Man…this is gotten way beyond me. This was preformed by Twinprov, and they sent the video over to me, saying they gave us a shout out.  From Twinprov’s site- “Twinprov is a one-of-a-kind comedy troupe made up of two-of-a-kind twin brothers…

As you may already know, my favorite sidekick (next to Aqualad) passed yesterday. Ed Mcahon- 1923-2009. Ed was more man than you or me will ever be.

How to build an entire silkscreen shop for under 2K.

So over the last 2 weeks, we here at Nakatomi have been busting ass getting our print studio up and running… and now we want to show off the fruits of our labors! This whole thing fits into a 10×15 garage, and ran us just under 2K.  We finished our first print in the new studio last night, and we couldn’t be more proud (or smug in our awesome-sauce.) Nakatomi fellow Clint Wilson pitched in…

Goodbye, Frankenstein.

Goodbye, Frankenstein.

The world lost one of its baddest asses today, and is not near as cool as it was. I grew up on a diet of Kung Fu reruns. There was action in every episode, but there was also the wise teachings of the old Chinese guy from Gremlins. Like Grasshopper, it was the basis for my spiritual understanding. Then you get to see David Carradine use that knowledge to solve problems in the old west……
